So while I was in the LA area on previously mentioned Disneyland mini vacation, I decided to spend a free day visiting local comic book shops as well as one of my favorite art galleries – Gallery Nucleus. To my delight, they had a Star Wars exhibit going on, which just seemed too good to be true. Although it ended last weekend, make sure to check out their event schedule as they always have something fun going on!
With that, here are some of my favorite pieces from the exhibit!
I’m finally back and recovered from Disneyland! I’m also sadly one year older. Sigh! Attempting 24 hours at Disneyland was crazy. I think we ended up spending something like 16 hours there, and even though we didn’t survive the entire 24 hours (we only made it until 3am), I had a blast! Parades at midnight, breakfast burritos, dance parties, TV crews, and people dressed up in costumes and even in their pajamas! It was an amazing experience, but I will probably never do it again! I definitely felt like a zombie once midnight passed and the drive home was torture. But with that, I wanted to share my Disneyland outfit of the day! Happy Friday!
For someone who lives a 6 hour drive away from LA, I am pretty sure I frequent Disneyland more than the average person in the Bay Area. Estimating something like 2 times a year for the past 10+ years, I’d say I’ve been there quite a lot, almost to the point where I must go at least once a year. And for the first time in my life, I am an annual pass holder, which means Disneyland all year round!! Woo hoo! Some of you may wonder if one would just get sick of Disneyland after a while, but if you’ve been there enough, you’ll come to realize that there is a whole ‘nother dimension of Disneyland - Disneyana.

I knew that Big Wow Comic Fest was going to be pretty fun, but I have to say I had a blast. Like Yoda says, “Size matters not” and even though Big Wow is a smaller con, they really brought it this year with some awesome guests and fun panels. Seriously, how often do you get to meet people like J.Scott Campbell and Stan Lee, but without the enormous lines? Or even sit front row to watch Adam Hughes or Frank Cho draw right before your eyes? It definitely beats having to watch them on a big screen in a 5,000 person room, that’s for sure. I mean, places like SDCC may bring the movie stars, but I’m starting to realize that you have to do 10xs the waiting in order to see maybe a guest that’s only a little bit cooler.
Since the con was just a car ride away, I decided to bring one of my most treasured art pieces Continue reading →
The title says it all. Happy Star Wars Day! I love May 4th because it just gives you an excuse to re-watch your favorite Star Wars episode and wear your favorite Star Wars tee. Wait, I guess I do that every once in a while anyways. I guess it also gives you reasoning to be able to talk about Star Wars all day long and force your friends to listen to it. How about that? On top of that, what could be better than Star Wars day except that it happens to also be the same day as Free Comic Book Day! Amazing! The stars have aligned today and all is right in the universe. Of course I got my fix of both. What about you guys?
If there’s one thing about geeks, it’s that they love their fan art. One of my favorite things to check out at cons is the Artist Alley and you can guarantee that I will always come home with at least one new piece of art. But it doesn’t stop there. I was recently exploring Society6.com only to find that they now make printed pillow cases! So not only can you hang your geeky art, but you can cozy up to it on the couch. With that, I wanted to share a few of my favorite pieces of art that I’ve picked up from cons over the years as well as some fun ways to make your home more geeky!
It’s amazing how little clothes one can live off of while on vacation especially since I’m a pretty light packer always pack things I can mix, match, and re-wear a lot. On top of that, it helps me not have to think about what to wear while traveling. So by the time I return to normal life after vacation, I have to admit that I get a little overwhelmed by what to wear and suddenly I have no idea how to mix and match an outfit anymore! The first couple of days are always tough and I find myself being lazy by wearing lots of leggings, tees, and cardigans. I know that leggings is somewhat of a lazy alternative to pants, but sometimes I can’t help myself since I just want to be comfortable. So apologies in advance for this somewhat “lazy” outfit today! Happy Monday!
